Larry worked many years on heavy construction equipment working on the cat line in Northern Manitoba, operating the grader for the RM of Thompson and until 2011 running the loader and crushing gravel for Beatty Construction in Erikson, Manitoba. Dad has always enjoyed the outdoors gardening, manicuring his lawn, fishing and working with his son on the farm. Dad was a farmer at heart, starting his own farm near Mt.
